The "premium" thing really puts me off these days... It's one of those buzzwords that's really popular right now, hence you can get premium everything, from cotton pads to ketchup (made from premium tomatoes), not to mention shisha. Actually I can only think of one brand that doesn't classify itself as "premium"... good old Nakhla.

I've noted that the terms "freedom" and "premium" have a lot in common in that those that are actually free or products that actually are premium don't feel the need to shout about it for the simple reason it's obvious enough to be left unstated. Also, more often then not, those that proclaim they are "free" or "premium" have to do so because they don't intrinsically have those characteristics.

When I smoke Desi Merli or Salloum I know what I am getting will be first rate and brightly coloured tins and animated websites aren't needed. Really good moassel is sort of like an Aston Martin in that both are understated yet perform well. Conservative styling work for both because everyone knows what they are about with having it screamed at them.

hahaha your all complaining, but thats marketing man, you need that shit, or else your not going to make money.

If they don't say words like "premium" and "exotic" then some schmuck might not buy them.
